Our Uniform Policy
Our Uniform Policy reinforces our ethos of high aspirations and expectations, and helps children to understand the difference between suitable attire for different settings: school; work; holidays and weekends. Children who are appropriately dressed for school are ready to learn and take part in all areas of the curriculum.
We believe our uniform unites us as a community, gives an identity to be proud of and reduces distractions. Wearing uniform promotes children’s self-esteem and helps them to feel proud of themselves and of their achievements at school. Uniform also acts as an equaliser – no-one has to feel awkward about the clothes they have or don’t have.
Children are expected to wear our uniform when in school and we maintain high expectations for children to stay neat and tidy at all times (e.g. shirts tucked in, laces tied).
Winter (after the October half-term holiday until the end of the spring term)
|• Pale blue polo shirt with academy logo (or plain pale blue polo shirt)
• Royal Blue sweatshirt or cardigan with academy logo
• Grey school trousers, skirt, shorts or pinafore
• Grey, white or black socks / grey or black tights
• Black, flat, sensible shoes
Summer (after the Easter holidays until the October half-term holiday)
|• Same as the winter uniform with optional blue/white checked (gingham) summer dress.
PE Kit (in a named bag)
• Royal blue t-shirt with academy logo (or plain royal blue t-shirt)
Children may only wear one, small, plain stud earring in each ear. Children must be able to remove earrings themselves for PE or other sporting events. Please bear this in mind when considering having your child’s ears pierced and arrange for ear-piercing to be done at the beginning of the summer holidays to allow for adequate healing time. Children who are not able to remove earrings (as these may be newly pierced) must have the earrings taped by their parent/carer at the start of the school day and removed by the parent/carer at the end of the school day. Staff will not supply, apply or remove tape.
Watches must be permanently named and children must be responsible for them.
All items must be clearly labelled with the child’s full name.
